the 2013 Alumni Award for
Outstanding Achievement in Research
Dr. Charng-Hsein Juang, Civil Engineering
The Alumni Award for Outstanding Achievement in Research was presented to Dr. Charng-Hsein Juang in Civil Engineering. Juang’s research is in geotechnical engineering, which is the branch of
civil engineering that focuses on the behavior of earth materials, such
as rock and soil. His most recent research is on liquefaction — the loss
of soil stability — caused by earthquakes. Another current research
project involves the development of a new robust geotechnical design
methodology, which could lead to improvements in deep excavation
projects in congested, urban areas. Dr. Juang is the Co-Editor in Chief for Engineering Geology, an international journal. Click here to learn more about Juang's work.
